Cinthia Marcelle (b.1974) lives and works in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Cinthia Marcelle is interested in many artistic processes, seeking the raw material of her work in social relations and in the everyday chaos that surrounds her. Working with drawings, collages, photographs, paintings, video and installations, her works reference urban and natural environments, and carry within themselves a temporal character, present in the exploration of repetition and accumulation of waste. Marcelle highlights and disorders things, creating interventions that propose a formal reorganisation of everyday objects and situations.
Cinthia has had recent solo exhibitions at Casa do Bandeirante, Sao Paulo (2018); Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro (2018); Modern Art Oxford, Oxford (2018); Logan Centre, Chicago (2017); MOMA PS1, New York (2016); and Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, Rio de Janeiro (2013). Her work has also been included in significant group exhibitions at Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco (2019); MAXXI, Rome (2018); Casa Azeitona, Belo Horizonte (2018); Seoul Museum of Art (2017); Thyssen Bornemisza Museum, Madrid (2017), J.Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles (2016); and Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow (2015). She participated in the 10th Berlin Biennale (2018) and represented Brazil in the 57th Venice Biennale.
